The Rick Riordan books featuring Percy Jackson have inspired a generation with their unique twist on Greek Mythology. After all, it’s easy to disappear into the world of Percy Jackson and his friends, where adventure waits around every corner! What if you could have your own mythological adventure though? Here’s 5 reasons why every Percy Jackson fan should visit Greece!
Visit the places mentioned in the Percy Jackson Books
There are many key locations in the Percy Jackson books, some of which are fictitious, and some of which are real. Greece, as the original home of the Greek Gods, of course features prominently, and a visit to Greece is a great opportunity to see some of those places mentioned in the books. The Acropolis is perhaps the most obvious example. In the Percy Jackson universe, Percy and his friends battle against some of the Giant army here in ‘The Blood of Olympus’. In ‘real-life’ so to speak, the Acropolis is one of the most visited archaeological sites in Greece and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Olympia is another location that features in the Blood of Olympus, but that can also be visited during a vacation in Greece. The birthplace of the Olympic games is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
